Bosnia & Herzegovina

Recent renaissance of Sevdah in Bosnia and Herzegovina and explosion at the World Music scene has been trail-blazed by and taken to the new level by this new artist which represents this musical form like no one before. Music audiences across the Europe discovered Sevdah and fell in love with it, thanks to the angelic voice and passionate performances by Amira. "Amulette" is the latest and so far the brightest example of modern Bosnian sevdalinka, as well as some songs from other countries at Balkan Peninsula. If you like Folk/Jazz Fusion, you in for a treat. Amira's voice is in a full power and in perfect harmony with band made of internationally recognized artists: Bojan Zulfikarpasic, Nenad Vasilic, Bachar Kalife and Vlatko Stefanovski.

For all of those who don't know the meaning of the word SEVDAH here is the quote by Kim Burton, fellow musician and author, which should give you an emotional guide before you listen to the Amulette: "It is not easy to find a single word in English that can stand for the Bosnian concept of Sevdah, although yearning perhaps comes closest. Like the Spanish duende, it carries multiple meanings - love, hopeless love, endless love, a desire that chills and fevers the lover like malaria, and like malaria can never be shaken off - but in the end, it's a way of life, and a narrative that tells the story of itself."

Greatly appreciated and warmly recommended! Superb album! (samirmuslic)
